IN THE spring of 1898 ten members of The 
Society of American Artists simultaneously 
resigned from that organization. Immedi- 
ately thereafter, under the name "Ten American 
Painters," they formed themselves into a society 
which, without constitution, by-laws, or officers, 
has continued for a decade exerting an influence 
upon the art of this country which it would be 
hard to. overestimate. 

The death of John H. Twachtman in 1902 and 
later the unanimous election of William M. Chase 
to membership have made the only changes in the 
personnel of ' ' The Ten ' ' since its beginning. 

Bound together only by ties of mutual respect 
and of ability, they have held each year a showing 
of current work; and now on their tenth anniver- 
sary have organized this exhibition, which presents 
for the first time such a collection of their works 
as will give opportunity for a fuller study of their 
aims and accomplishments than it has been pos- 
sible to make within the confines of a single 
gall ery . 

In the selection of works for this exhibition each 
individual painter has been entirely free, excepting 
only that he was limited to ten canvases, and the 
effort has been to present those works by which 
the men would most care to be represented, rather 
than to secure pictures which had not been pre- 
viously exhibited. Indeed, several of the paint- 
ings included have, in the past few years, added 
distinction to the Annual Exhibitions of The Penn- 
sylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. They are, 
however, in themselves sufficient excuse, if excuse 
be necessary, for the second showing here.
